The Monster Outlet To Go Powerstrips - A Best Friend To Bring Along On Your Travels

Updated on June 6, 2014

My review of the Monster Outlets To Go Powerstrip came to me because my love and I are traveling Europe at the moment and we've always found it helpful to have a power strip along for the ride. Not just any power strip, mind you but, in particular, this Monsters Outlets To Go Power Strip. And here's why:

I was about to dry my hair on the cruise ship, the Costa Serena (don't bother - there will be another review coming on that 'ship' when I have time) and, as usual, there was only one power outlet in the room. Now, John is in IT so we have every single electrical gadget known to man. We travel with 3 computers, 2 iPads, 3 phones - you get the picture. So, there was nowhere to plug in a hair dryer let alone the 'essentials' we'd brought along.

Realizing that we'd need a power strip, I had previously purchased the Belkin Power Strip but it broke almost immediately because the prongs do not fold back into the unit. One bump against a wine bottle in a suitcase (true story....) and the thing was dead. I was left cordless - oh the sorrow....

So, when John unexpectedly pulled the Monster Outlet from his laptop bag, I was skeptical until I saw that, on this particular power strip, the prongs fold right into the unit, making it veritably impossible to break against that wine bottle (word of caution though; if the wine bottle breaks, you're still out of luck....).

Although the Monster Outlets To Go Power Strip on Amazon.com does not have USB ports, John knew that wasn't important for our needs as always have some electronic device floating around the does have a USB outlet. So, for our money, the Monster Outlet was it.
